The Netherlands eScience Center is the national hub for the development and application of domain overarching software and methods for the scientific community. The eScience Center is a joint initiative of the Dutch national research council (NWO) and the Dutch organisation for ICT in education and research (SURF).
The projects are collaborations with University of Twente, Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, Delft University of Technology, University of Groningen and Wageningen University.
While the Arctic faces rapid warming and less sea ice currently covers the Arctic Ocean than ever before at this time of the year, an international partnership launches a major project to improve our detailed understanding of the processes and impacts of this changing climate and to construct better long-term forecast systems for the increasingly extreme weather of the Arctic and the wider northern hemisphere.
“In onze samenwerking streven we steeds naar breed inzetbare resultaten, want dan heeft het echt impact ”
Sylvia Kuijpers (SURFnet), Walter Lioen (SURFsara) en Frank Seinstra (Netherlands eScience Center)
The projects are the result of the 2016 ASDI (Accelerating Scientific Discovery) and DTEC (Disruptive Technologies) Calls.
